Product Description

Recommended as a miracle for better sleep! Find out why the world is sleeping better with White Noise. Features ambient sounds of the environment to help you relax during the day and sleep great at night.

Do you have trouble going to sleep? Are you traveling on a plane and need a quick power nap? Does your newborn baby wake up in the middle of the night? There are numerous benefits to using White Noise:

• Helps you sleep by blocking distractions
• Relaxes and reduces stress
• Pacifies fussy and crying babies
• Increases focus while enhancing privacy
• Soothes headaches and migraines
• Masks tinnitus (ringing of the ears)

Even when you’re asleep, your brain is constantly scanning and listening for sounds. If it’s too quiet, unwanted noises such as faucet drips or police sirens can interrupt your sleep. White Noise generates sounds over a wide range of frequencies, masking those noise interruptions, so you can not only fall asleep, but stay asleep.

The app has a wide range of cool sounds. I can tell several are on a loop, which simply drives me nuts. But the one I use, brown noise, works just perfectly. User friendly interface and its free!

HOWEVER... it FORCES you to rate it in the most annoying fashion. It asks, then if you click either ask later or no, the request simply blinks back onto the screen until you rate it so the app become s unusable till you follow through. This is incredibly pushy, severely annoying and inconvenient, and just plain rude. Hopefully this review makes it go away forever, but I already wrote one that was rejected and it came back today after a week or so absence.

This is a great FREE app. Beautiful images and high-quality sounds. That being said, I wouldn't pay for it unless it had a few additional features not currently available. Those being the following.

1. This app doesn't allow you to mix various sounds together.
2. The sounds are on a noticeable loop. For sleep you would most likely fall asleep before noticing it, but if reading, you will notice loop patterns.
3. This app doesn't offer a "quit" button. You can only "pause" and the app continues to run in background. It needs a quit option like Pandora and I-heart-Radio. I had to use the "Force Stop" so it wouldn't run in background.

Hope this review helps others.

PS: I kind of worry for the individual that enjoys listening to the very annoying sound of a vacuum cleaner. That would not relax me, it would make me think of chores!!! :-)

I am VERY sensitive to noise of all kinds. I initially purchased White Noise Lite (which is free). Although it worked quite well, the free version only runs alone, which means you can't read a Kindle book at the same time you use White Noise Lite. I decided that a couple of bucks was a small price to pay to block out my boyfriend's rock band rehearsal while I read.

There are so many great choices for noises on the White Noise app -- many more than on the free version. Although I like Pink Noise best while I'm trying to read, my favorite sound on this app is of a cat purring. I can't wait to play that one the next time I take a nap. I find the sound of a cat purring very relaxing and become instantly drowsy when I hear it. I am also thrilled that the next time I'm staying in a hotel where I can hear noises outside my room, I will be able to play a soothing sound from this app instead of suffering through the noise or spending a bunch of money on a white noise machine (which I have almost done many times).

After having some trouble falling asleep as of late, I decided to try the white noise deal and after reviewing a handful of programs I selected this one and one other. On the "other" program you get the app and then have to download your sounds. This program comes already populated with sounds. It appears that you can download sounds - but I haven't tried that as I was happy with one of the sounds as packaged.

Lucky for me the "water" sounds just like my old aquarium and recalling those days I slept like a rock. So gave it a go last night and instead of laying there for hours, apparently went to sleepy land in no time at all. Normally I wake up several times during the night - but not last night. Needless to say I think I'm hooked.

Things I like: Being able to set the amount of time the sounds will play. Being able to adjust the app sounds separately from the phone volume. I like the "Prevent Interruptions" button. I like the clock - but I have to say that, damn - it's bright. I didn't read the directions and since my phone sits in a holder I had to place a hat over it to dim it down. Upon reading the directions today though - it's very simple to darken or brighten the display - and even change colors. There is a dozen or so different switches that one can choose from.

Things I don't like: Well - none so far.

Big thumbs up and highly recommend.

UPDATE: I do give TMSOFT great credit for being directly concerned concerning the original GPS permission usage, which was accompanying the inclusion of the Google Maps module. GPS has since been removed. The app still contains the Google Map module itself, but a) I am aware that at times the embedding of such code can be near impossible to simply extract without complete re-writing (an issue that has plagued countless of long-lived online games and services), and b) without the GPS, it is pretty much an orphaned module.

Also, just to highlight upfront, the Record Audio is directly used to set up your own "soothing" tracks, such as your 8 year old belching "Yankee Doodle Dandy" to share with friends and family alike . Or perhaps not.

----- Original
I deeply enjoy a relaxation App called Relax Melodies Premium: A White Noise Ambience For Sleep, Meditation & Yoga, being one of my top favorite apps in general, so I was a bit excited to have a chance to see how this stacked up. Until I saw the permissions...

Funny enough, the dev team explains certain permissions:
